    Wrong. The HofR is supposed to work for the people, and the IRS was being as a tool to check on the actions of the Reps on behalf of the electorate.

    Just as an employee has no right to scrutinize the actions of an employer surveillance camera, the HofR (employees of the People) have no right to scrutinize the actions of tools used to monitor them.

    The IRS has a moral duty to scrutinize the finances of member of Congress, because those finances come from the taxpayer--us.

    Well that's wrong. Politicians have more freedom and are subject to fewer laws than the electorate. The people get their say every 2 or 6 years, but what the politicians do in the intervening time is not controlled by the electorate. And you break your argument here anyway. If the Politicians are just puppets of their electorate and are supposed to act on their wishes then all of these politicians, by the act of being re-elected, are doing what the people want.


    But getting back to your statement about the House having no right to investigate the IRS: It's bull****. There are numerous Congressional bodies formed to be oversight to the operation of government. It's part of the balance of power in the Federal Government. The President appoints the leadership of the government agencies and the Congress oversees the operations to check the power of the president.

    quit grandstanding and have someone independently investigate the nature of the data loss.
    show us whether it was a nefarious incident or a legitimate one
    And who would Eric Holder appoint? Let me tell you another Obama loyalist. Of course you know that.

    So stop with the grandstanding.

    So Politicians lose their Constitutional rights when they become elected ?
